Arts & Crafts
Wiltshire Creative has a vision to enrich the cultural and creative life of Salisbury, Wiltshire and beyond.
A Tail of Yarn
I LOVE yarn but I HATE waste, so I spin local animal fibres with sustainable textile waste to create eye-catching art yarns. What isn’t spun is either felted to create vegetarian sheepskin items or carded and woven into peg loom rugs. I use my yarns for Saori-inspired weaving - designs and styles are minimal and functional. I’m passionate about inspiring others to keep traditional skills alive, so I create spinning and weaving kits and offer tuition and workshops.
All That Glistens
Hand painted glassware, mostly with witchcraft and gothic themes. All items are rescued and recycled

Nadder Community Energy

Typical ways to generate renewable energy are wind turbines, heat pumps, biomass boilers, anaerobic digesters, hydro schemes and PV (solar) panels on roofs or mounted on the ground.
Community energy groups also work on combating fuel poverty and improving energy efficiency by modifying insulation and draught-proofing.

No direct swap is necessary. In monetary terms, the LETSystem is like a sophisticated form of barter. It offers free credit! It has to.
